Today, the international media landscape is more connected than ever and moves at an increasingly rapid pace, giving communication professionals a variety of new challenges to overcome. Addressing the cross-cultural needs of the 21st century, EFAP has placed a global vision at the core of its philosophy. In 2000, we developed a partnership with New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), a private American university, allowing students access to a rigorous academic curriculum and cutting-edge technology in the heart of the communications capital of the world – New York City.
The Master of Arts in Communication offers a unique approach that combines theoretical principles of research, aesthetic design, cultural studies, and hands-on production techniques across a variety of both traditional and non-traditional media. Students have the opportunity to create a degree program that is tailored to their academic interests and career goals through several areas of specialization. This collaborative and interdisciplinary program nurtures students’ talents, develops their skills, and connects them to a faculty of specialists with unparalleled industry experience and connections throughout the world.
Our urban campus is located in the center of Manhattan next to the iconic Time Warner complex, the Lincoln Center, Central Park, and acts as the perfect launch-pad for a career in the communications industry. Surrounded by countless major companies dedicated to media creation, production, advertising, public relations and journalism, students are encouraged to pursue a wide variety of internship opportunities that add valuable real-world experience to their resumes. Thousands of amazing professional experiences are all within walking distance of NYIT’s studios, classrooms, digital libraries and offices.
Students are not only prepared for leadership roles that will drive change in the communication and media industries, they will also be part of a dynamic global network of more than 100,000 NYIT alumni and professionals. The Master of Arts in Communication Arts is a challenging yet rewarding experience and we invite you to take your professional career to the next level by joining the NYIT community!
